Arnold Excited to Play Conan in Planned Sequel


Conan the Barbarian ended with Conan sitting on the throne after years of battle.

The Legend of Conan will fulfill the promise of that epilogue.

In a recent interview, The actor recently did an interview with Nerd Report, and when asked about Legend of Conan, this is what he said:

“I was hoping to do another one, and I [liked] the idea of Conan having been king for a long time, then just threw it all away and went into retirement and went off into the mountains. That whole idea always appealed to me. Then of course he gets asked back because of some hideous and unbelievable things that are happening to the kingdom. So that’s when the battle begins again.”

Screenwriter and producer Chris Morgan has spoken quite a bit  about the movie in the past, and he explained the character as follows:

“I want the warrior whose joints have started to fuse together, who has to crack the cartilage so he can pick up a sword again. I want the guy who’s not necessarily lost a step, but there’s some rust he has to shake off. I want to embrace that. It makes it a greater hero story.

“Conan needs to be faced with challenges. The greatest challenge to him isn’t the armies that are set before him. It’s, on some level, self-doubt, a little bit of slowing down and forcing yourself to be heroic beyond what people expect of you. What I don’t want is for him to step back in and look the same. That would defeat the purpose of our story.”

The script for it is still in development, and it was most recently polished by Andrea Berloff (Straight Outta Compton).
